About us

The idea for the BugaBees came from one mother’s need to educate her young daughter about food allergies. Inspired by the millions of other families also seeking ways to learn and cope with this condition, BugaBee characters were created to help children remain healthy and happy in spite of a food allergy diagnosis.
